History

In 1884 Christian Wollenberg opened a meat market in a building first used by Huntzicker & Pfeiffer. In 1899 he built an up-to-date brick building with a meat market in front and living quarters in the rear. This later became the Central Hotel (pictured above). Greenwood History – “The Hub of Clark County 1853 – 1934” chapter six.

The Central Hotel at Greenwood was purchased by Ora J. and Adel (Davis) Howard in April of 1945. The hotel was re-opened after being reconditioned.

I enjoyed looking over the history of the Howard Hotel & the list of people staying at the hotel in those years gone by. Am remembering how some of "us kids" in Greenwood found a way into the vacant hotel back in the late '30's or early '40's. It was sort of spooky going up & down the halls & looking into the simple rooms that hadn't been touched in a long time.  I found the guest list in this sampling to be interesting...some names from early Greenwood such as P.W. Gullard - who had the Gullard Drug Store next door to the hotel for many years. Wonder if his stay at the hotel was when he purchased the drug store? Norma Telford.

As I recall, the hotel didn't look like the picture above.  It had been changed into either apartments or rental rooms.  My cousin, Alvin Brick, lived there in later years.  It was being run by the Howards.  Lorraine Schwarze
